Covenant should have been honoured

To the editor:

How insulting of the City of Kelowna to once again disrespect the Simpson Covenant.

What is morally different from this Council's relentless pursuit of developing this land regardless of the Supreme Court decision and the repeat offenders we see in the news everyday?

Absolutely nothing, they both believe they are above the law.

Let me remind the citizens of Kelowna of a quote by Albert Einstein:

"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."

Also, may I remind you it was this same Simpson Family who built the tarred road up Knox Mountain that everyone gets to use and enjoy, plus the enormous donation towards the Park Warden's Residence, washrooms and refurbishing the pavilion.

This is not only Sharron Simpson's fight, this is every law abiding citizen's fight.

Let us show the Simpson Family the respect they so rightly deserve by honouring the Covenant.
